It is important to note that Virginia Tech does not recognize paying a ticket as an admission of guilt. If you appeal the ticket and it is reviewed and overturned, then you will be mailed a refund. However, many argue that paying a parking violation assumes liability which would make the process of appealing more difficult. Therefore, it is preferred that you leave your ticket unpaid, and dispute it within 10 calendar days of its issuance.

Do Parking Tickets Go On My Record?
Parking tickets do not go on your permanent record. As long as you pay the bill or dispute the ticket in a timely manner, then a parking ticket cannot affect your driving privileges. However, if you leave a large sum of your parking fines unpaid for an extended period of time, and you have your license suspended or if you cannot renew your registration, then that will go on your permanent record.
